The Cynthia Rylant Author Study has facts about the author and balanced literacy activities. There is a poster with facts about the author. The set includes 4 comprehension and writing activities. The activities are great for teaching your students about making literature connections and author's purpose. I use this author study when we read the her story Mr. Putter and Tabby Pour the Tea. My students and I love learning about authors. I hope your students enjoy it also!
